JUVENTUS v AC ROMA – SERIE A
January 24 2016, Juventus Arena, 19:45 GMT+0
Juventus in continuing with a excellent form, especially when it comes to home games, with only 1 loss in 9 matches, and even that loss came from the start of the season, when Juventus just couldn’t find it’s pace. Last year’s champions will await 5th placed Roma, who are comming from 2 consecutive draws against AC Milan and Hellas Verona. Both of games they played at home, and should surely put up a better performance if they want to stay in the top position of the league.
Looking at away matches from Roma, they haven’t tasted victory in the last 5 matches, even though they came close in a match against Chievo, where where they were leading (2:3) until 85′, when Chievo attacker Pepe scored his goal just 4 minutes after he was substituted into the game.
Today’s match will be tougher than any of their previous, as Juventus seems as unstoppable at the moment and there is still a question remaining, is there anyone who can stop them?
“The Old Lady” is proving to be almost impossible to beat after September, when they stepped on the gas towards 1st place in Serie A. At Juventus Arena their last defeat was on 23.8.2015 against Udinese, and were not defeated after 23.9.2015. This is a scary information for any team visiting Juventus, a team that needs to keep up their winning streak to get their goal.
Today Juventus won’t hold back, as this win means they get to breathe behind Napoli’s collar with only 2 points separating them, so a simple draw from Napoli would mean Juventus gets to sit on his throne once again.
The visitors will have to start this match withouth Strootman, Ponce, Ucan and Gervinho, so there are no new missing players. On the positive note, Keita is back after missing the last match.
The home side Juventus will miss Pereyra and Lemina, who are both injured, but will be happy to welcome back Barzagli.
In conclusion, this should be a easy win for Juventus, to grab them another 3 points in their quest for 1st place in Serie A.
